The walk from the 18th green to the scoring area at Trump National Golf Club doesn't take very long.
Park Sung-hyun is also in the driver's seat for the Rookie of the Year honors. She started the final round three shots off the pace and made the turn after a 34.
With a final-round 67, South Korean's Sung Hyun Park finished off a furious 36-hole rally to claim victory in the 72nd U.S. Women's Open, her first on the LPGA Tour.
"I actually can not believe that even I am making this acceptance speech, that this is actually happening, but the fact that I guess my name is going to be engraved on it is unbelievable joy and happiness". "But I had the 1-under yesterday and I felt better about everything".
From there, she chipped to within three feet and made the putt to save par.
Shanshan Feng made her first birdie of the day on the 18th hole and with it retained the lead after three rounds of the US Women's Open in New Jersey. But not only is Park skilled, she also has manners, as she was captured bowing to US President and course owner Donald Trump in the final round... There was a brief peaceful protest near his observation platform on Sunday afternoon, but otherwise, it was a pretty normal day at the golf course.
Among those missing the cut at 2 over were Brittany Lincicome, who said two weeks ago that Trump should not attend the tournament so the focus would be on the golfers, and Danielle Kang, who two weeks ago won the KPMG Women's PGA.
DeChambeau became the 10th first-time victor on the PGA Tour this season.
No American finished inside the top 10.
Feng, who began the day with a two-stroke edge, stretched her two-day par streak to 23 holes in a row before her heroics at 18, relentless and consistent hole after hole.
But there is nothing meek about Choi's game.
Feng needed to eagle 18 to tie the lead but her ball rolled off the back of the green, leading to an eight.
Choi took the lead with a birdie on the seventh hole and had a chance to take a three-shot lead at the ninth, but her birdie putt slide by the hole. Park's birdie was one of only four scored on that hole all day. Choi pushed her tee shot right at the 139-yard par 3, dunking it into the water. After taking the one-shot penalty, he missed a 4-footer and had to settle for a double bogey.
With the victory, Park won her first major title and the 900-thousand USA dollars top prize.
In the end, the 17-year-old amateur didn't become the youngest player to win a women's major. When asked about that after the round, she could only smile. "I was just trying to get through the hole, maybe with a par".
"I was putting well on the back nine today".
Feng's only major victory came at the 2012 LPGA Championship, her first United States triumph.
The birdie gave Olympic bronze medallist Feng a one-under 71 for a 54-hole total of nine-under 207, one shot better than Yang and Choi, who both shot 70 among a wave of Korean challengers.
The 23-year-old shot back-to-back rounds of 67s over the weekend to get past South Korean amateur Choi Hye-jin.
Rodgers, on the other hand, had four bogeys - and his approach on No. 18 sailed past the green.
"My mind basically went blank", Park said.
